    I'm so pleased this series will be back after Secret Wars and they're not mucking up the formula that has worked so well: Hopeless, Rodriquez, and the kickass new uniform will be back. And the time away is just long enough for Jessica to find herself in a delicate situation. Click here if you wish to be spoiled. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Aug 26, 2015

    This series has performed well recently and this issue is not different. It could be considered to be a bit of light fluff, but it also manages to hold it together with the strength of the characters as they are written. Even the Porcupine comes off as a much more redeemable character here than he has elsewhere, even previously in this series. As is promised in the letter column at the end, there are changes coming to the series, but they are changes that focus on the character once again, and proves that the creative team has got it right with how to handle what they have here. This issue might not be the best example, but it is fun and it works and uses what it has to its advantage. Read Full Review

    Spider-Woman has a fun energy, and I hope Hopeless can keep it up when we come back. Read Full Review

    Event gripes aside, it's still a pretty issue as rendered by guest artist Natacha Bustos. Her lines possess a similar energy to series' artist Javier Rodriguez, though her action sequences aren't quite as dynamic. Here's hoping a new Marvel means less event obstacles. Read Full Review

    The Rainbow Hub - Eve Aug 30, 2015

    Despite the slightly rushed feeling, this final issue carries over the wacky, enjoyable camp of the B-movie story from issue #9 while preserving Jessica's new status quo that started with issue #5 and will hopefully continue into her new series. Though I have my own personal reservations about the new direction (mainly centering around the idea that Jessica Drew is a character who says things like "That is a baby. Now get it away from me"), I have a great deal of faith in how Hopeless and Rodrguez have brought her character through the past six issues and hope this new direction is preserved as they move forward.

    Comic Crusaders - Shane Tydeman Sep 7, 2015

    This book is a whole lot of fun and it's witty, Hopeless' direction is hopeful with questions needing answers and notably developing The Porcupine's previously lesser-known character in the Marvel Universe. He is an awesome wing man and/or comic relief for this story and given the right direction has potential. The added art by Bustos and Gandini is pleasing for the eye and is sharp and it emphasizes Hopeless' story. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Jaleh Najafali Sep 1, 2015

    Spider-Woman #10 features a misguided story that only serves to get readers to pick up "Secret Wars" titles. Between the peculiar pacing and the unremarkable plot, this is one of Hopeless' weakest issues since this series launched. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 31, 2015

    An abrupt ending, though one with the promise of a new start soon, and some fun bits of action/comedy along the way. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 27, 2015

    The end installment of Spider-Woman is one that has its moments, particularly from guest artist Natacha Bustos, but in the end it manages to turn me away from the book under the main team. The series had – and still has – the potential to do some fun things with Jess that takes her away from the world ending events and multiverse elements. But they swung far too far in the other direction and ended up scraping the bottom of the barrel and making Jess into someone that wouldn't step up for the big event without being shoved into action for the most part. Hopeless had some good dialogue for her early on and I enjoyed her adventures in the Spider-Verse, but once Hopeless got past that it felt listless. I'm definitely going to keep an eye out for Bustos though as she did a solid job here with layouts and the overall dynamic, especially with the Black Widow pages. Read Full Review
